2015 was a fantastic year for KOCT! We converted our television station to All Hi-Definition, won a Hometown Media Award for the “ 18th Annual Powwow”, an produced a new promotional video for Oceanside and North County. There is so much more to be proud of—in fact just surviving as a local media resource is cause for celebration!
But KOCT cannot take all the credit for our success and that’s why we need to acknowledge the many business, people and volunteers that believe in the value of an independent local television station.
Thanks to our Corporate Sponsor, Patrick Dockry and his progressive company Enjoy Haircare Products (and for his great TV program too: Health Beauty Life)
Thanks to our Underwriters that help make our community programming possible: Waste Management of North County, Scripps Health and Hatter-Williams & Purdy Insurance.
Thanks to and Announcing our latest Underwriter: Federal Heath Signs who has agreed to be our Election 2016 Sponsor!
Thanks to the work, effort and time put in by KOCT’s ALL VOLUNTEER Board of Directors: Chairman Lis Rhea, Vice-Chair Margret Merlock, Treasurer “Camo” Gleisberg, Secretary Kierstin Hill, Immediate Past-Chair Debbie Allen, Fundraising Chair Michelle Bray-Davis and Gwen Price, Dr. Dick Robertson, Gerald Hampton, Bill Ims, Frank Gould and Kent Davy.
KOCT’s ‘face’ is that of our many Television Hosts & Journalists. Many of these talented hosts and journalists have been volunteer talent for over 15 years! Thanks to John Bonosoro, Kent Davy, Elaine Swann, Alison St. John, Logan Jenkins, Brian Graham and Tom Morrow.
KOCT was able to produce many more programs because of the Grants we have received from local foundations, commissions and alliances: Thanks to the County of San Diego, City of Oceanside Arts Commission and Tri-City Medical Center & the Community Healthcare Alliance Committee. We are particularly excited about a new series of Community Health Matters that Tri-City Hospital is funding—these programs provide crucial information about local healthcare institutions like Vista Community Clinic, North County Health Services and, of course our local hospital-Tri-City Medical Center. And a special thanks to KOCT’s talented Grant Writer: Carol Mudgett!!
